A Reference Unit on the Meaning and Importance of Agribusiness.
Lee, Jasper S., Comp.
Developed in an attempt to clarify the concept of agribusiness and intended for use with its companion document, "Teaching the Meaning and Importance of Agribusiness," this manual is designed to assist youth in understanding the magnitude of agribusiness, and shows that agribusiness involves the removal of traditional farm functions to off-farm sites. To aid in understanding the meaning, nature, and importance of agribusiness, the manual addresses the following questions in separate units: What is agribusiness? How is agribusiness related to agriculture? What is the "chain of agribusiness"? How did agribusiness evolve? How can the evolution of agribusiness be depicted? What contributed to the evolution of agribusiness? How important is agribusiness? and What are some terms that are used in describing agribusiness? A selected bibliography and sources of additional information are appended. (HD)
